Movie Info

Translator Cassandra Reilly (Judy Davis) is an American expatriate who has just about had her fill of Barcelona, Spain -- that is, until the mysterious Frankie Stevens (Marcia Gay Harden) enlists her to play detective and find her missing husband. Eager for excitement, Cassandra takes the job but discovers that all is not what it seems when Frankie's husband, Ben (Lili Taylor), turns out to be a woman, and their real battle is not one for divorce but for custody of their child.

  • A kooky, madcap adventure set in Barcelona devolves into a sort of sub -sub-Almodovar picture. Stay for the opening credits, then leave.

  • For a while, the sheer exoticism of the characters and the setting provides a certain amount of interest, but the film's farcical situations, mostly involving the sexual orientation of its characters, ultimately prove tiresome.

    March 24, 2003
  • A mildly entertaining gender-bender comedy set in Barcelona, never quite lives up to its excellent cast or the onetime promise of director Susan Seidelman.

    March 21, 2003 | Rating: 2/4
  • What should be a souffl of gender-bending mischief is more like a bowl of oatmeal.

    March 20, 2003 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Even the crackpot architectural genius of Antonio Gaudi cannot elevate this silly little farce of sexual confusion from director Susan Seidelman and writer James Myhre.

    March 20, 2003 | Rating: 1.5/4

  • The trumped-up alley-to-plaza intrigue could use more smoke and less mirrors.
